“Matt has played the calliope in our Saint Patrick’s Parade for as long as I can remember. It wouldn’t be a parade without him! He is fun and energetic and we love him like he’s family”. -Mary M, Owner, Murphys Furniture
“Matt arrived early to be able to set up and prepare for the program. He gave us a mini-program while doing this. He was a joy to work with. Even though we had a small audience, it was a wonderful time with singing, dancing and laughing. His musical talent allowed him to play requests, including the sound effects for various songs. The kids loved hearing the animal effects for Ol’ MacDonald had a Farm or the train whistle. They and the adults had a great time. We would be willing to have him come back again.” Sandy R., Program Manager, Kelso Senior Center Association
“…We decided to take on the largest event we had ever had…an Old-Fashioned Country Fair. One of the first suggestions was to have a calliope, so we went searching for one and found Matt! Matt was an absolute dream to work with and went way beyond what we expected! On the day of the event, his music created exactly the atmosphere we needed. Our residents thoroughly enjoyed the melodic tones of his calliope, as well as his fun and engaging personality. We will absolutely use him again this year.” Joy, Activity Director, CherryWood Village
